Celebrating 25 Years

As we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Gift of Adoption, we took the opportunity to catch up with some of the children who were helped with a Gift of Adoption grant to see where they are NOW. Below you will see videos and current photos of children whose lives were permanently changed for the better when they joined their forever families over the last 25 years. This is the lasting impact of your support of Gift of Adoption. We look forward to seeing what the next 25 years bring for these children and the children we will reach together in the coming years.

With Your Support, We Can Change More Lives

The need for adoption grants is growing faster than our ability to fund these requests.  Please consider the following opportunities to honor 25 years of bringing children home, and to help unite 525 children with permanent families in 2021.

A monthly commitment of any amount.
Consider an anniversary commitment of 25 monthly payments of $25.

Gift of Adoption Impact

Gift of Adoption relies solely on the generosity of donors to fulfill our mission, with no state or federal funding to supplement these efforts. With a small staff and hundreds of volunteers across the U.S., we are a high impact organization with intentional growth strategies that have doubled our capacity for grants over the last five years. We are the oldest and largest provider of grants awarded on a nondiscriminatory basis, a trusted partner in the adoption community and a highly credentialed nonprofit.
